The Entry into Jerusalem
As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the mount of
olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples, saying to them, ` go to the village ahead of you,
and just as you enter it, you will find a colt there which no one has ever ridden. Untie it
and bring it here. If anyone asks you, "why are you doing this?" say, `the Lord needs it
and will send it back here shortly.
They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it,
some people standing there asked, "What are you doing, untying that colt?" They
answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go. When they brought the
colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it. Many people spread their cloaks
on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who went
ahead and those who followed shouted,
"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!"
"Hosanna in the highest heaven!"
Jesus entered Jerusalem and went into the temple courts. He looked around at
everything, but since it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the Twelve.…read more

Jesus Anointed at Bethany
While he was in Bethany, reclining at the table in the home of Simon the
Leper, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, made
of pure nard. She broke the jar and poured the perfume on his head.
Some of those present were saying indignantly to one another, "Why this
waste of perfume? It could have been sold for more than a year's wages and
the money given to the poor." And they rebuked her harshly.
"Leave her alone," said Jesus. "Why are you bothering her? She has done a
beautiful thing to me. The poor you will always have with you, and you can
help them any time you want. But you will not always have me. She did what
she could. She poured perfume on my body beforehand to prepare for my
burial. Truly I tell you, wherever the gospel is preached throughout the
world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her."
Then Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to betray
Jesus to them. They were delighted to hear this and promised to give him
money. So he watched for an opportunity to hand him over.…read more

The Last Supper
On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, when it was customary to sacrifice the Passover
lamb, Jesus' disciples asked him, "Where do you want us to go and make preparations for you to eat
So he sent two of his disciples, telling them, "Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will
meet you. Follow him. Say to the owner of the house he enters, `The Teacher asks: Where is my guest
room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?' He will show you a large room upstairs,
furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there."
The disciples left, went into the city and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the
When evening came, Jesus arrived with the Twelve. While they were reclining at the table eating, he
said, "Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me--one who is eating with me."
They were saddened, and one by one they said to him, "Surely you don't mean me?"
"It is one of the Twelve," he replied, "one who dips bread into the bowl with me. The Son of Man will
go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better
for him if he had not been born."
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his
disciples, saying, "Take it; this is my body." Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he
gave it to them, and they all drank from it. "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for
many," he said to them. "Truly I tell you, I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until that day
when I drink it new in the kingdom of God."
When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.…read more
